Yes, the Galaxy S6 Edge bends under extreme pressure, but Samsung disputes the testing

Bendgate is back! Or, at least, that’s what SquareTrade aimed to reignite, posting a video on Friday that showed the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge put to a three-point pressure test against the HTC One M9 and iPhone 6 Plus. In this test (below), the Galaxy S6 Edge bent at exactly the same point as the iPhone 6 Plus – 50 kilos of force – while the HTC One M9’s hefty metal frame gave way at abo...[Read More]

MWC 2015: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge arrives with wraparound 2K screen

Leaks may have spoiled the surprise somewhat, but Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge is still a smartphone that makes you sit up and take notice. The Korean company has officially unveiled the S6 Edge, which has the distinction of being the world’s first phone with a screen on three of its four sides: a 5.1in quad-HD Super AMOLED display that covers almost the entirety of the device’s front and most of its ...[Read More]

MWC 2015: Samsung Galaxy S6 ditches the plastic, goes super high-res

The wait is finally over and the Samsung Galaxy S6 is here. And it’s the most beautiful Galaxy phone yet. What’s different? The Galaxy-staple plastic is gone, replaced with metal on the sides and glass on the back. So while it might look a bit like the Galaxy S5, it sure doesn’t feel like that phone. With this shift comes an Apple-like unibody design and a sadly also-Apple-like approach to s...[Read More]

Seemingly official HTC One (M9) renders and specs leak ahead of launch

Here it is: the HTC One M9. As best as we can tell, these are official renders of the company’s next smartphone, which were found on German retail sites a week ahead of the launch event. As seen in the renders, the HTC One M9 doesn’t vary dramatically from its popular predecessor, although it does bring an array of small, noticeable changes. Notably, the two-tone gold and silver colour scheme on t...[Read More]

PlayStation 4 consoles have found 18.5 million homes since launch

Sony and Microsoft both have their fanboys in the console sphere and it’s a foolish man or woman who wanders into the midst of an online flamewar about the merits of either console. Sony have been attempting to show up the Xbox One with regular releases of the numbers and they’ve just dropped another figure: 18.5 million. That’s the number of PlayStation 4 consoles that have been...[Read More]

Microsoft Band fitness wearable officially revealed, available now in US for $199

We figured official word was imminent after the odd series of overnight leaks, and sure enough, here it is: the Microsoft Band is very much real, and it’s even available now in the United States. Microsoft says the band – which works with Windows, Android, and iOS phones alike – is launching in limited quantities at this point, and is only available in Microsoft Stores and its web stor...[Read More]

Lenovo slides into wearable tech with the SW-B100 smartband

It’s no longer a case of who’s getting in on wearable tech but who isn’t – and Lenovo is no longer content to be the latter. The company’s Smartband SW-B100, which has popped up on the Lenovo website, looks a lot like the Fitbit Flex – a rubbery wristband that presumably syncs data with your smartphone. With Asus and even Xiaomi making fitness bands, you might wonder what L...[Read More]

GoPro Hero4 Black guzzles up 4K video at 30fps

GoPro has announced a trio of new action cams, as expected, one of which will capture your antics in smooth, glorious 4K. First up, we’ve got the GoPro Hero4 Black, which promises up to two times the performance of its predecessor, thanks to its beefier innards. That power means that it can record 4K video at 30fps, as opposed to the previous generation’s 15fps. It can also handle 2.7K...[Read More]

Mark your calendars: 30 September will be our first official look at Windows 9

Microsoft has had a leaky week, with screenshots and video footage of the next edition of Windows cropping up online from various sources. They’re going to be putting rumour to bed though, at an event slated to take place in San Francisco at the end of the moment. The event, which will reveal “…what’s next for Windows and enterprise”, will take place on 30 September a...[Read More]

LG’s G Watch R revealed with first fully circular Android Wear display

We got a pretty solid look at the rumoured LG G Watch R in the teaser video released a few days back, but now the Korean company has officially unveiled its second Android Wear smartwatch. Announced less than two months after the launch of the original G Watch, the G Watch R features a circular design with a 1.3in plastic OLED display running at 320×320; unlike the Moto 360, it doesn’t have p...[Read More]

Samsung announces the Gear S, its standalone 3G smartwatch

It’s been called a “watchphone” and most recently the “Gear Solo,” but Samsung has finally revealed its next long-rumoured wearable device: the Gear S, a smartwatch that has its own SIM card and 3G connection. You won’t need a paired smartphone to take calls, send messages, and use varying apps (like turn-by-turn navigation via HERE) on this Tizen-powered watch, which features a 2.0in Super AMOLED...[Read More]

LG G3 Stylus: another G3 variant with, yes, a stylus

Not long after the launch of the G3 Beat, LG has announced another variant of its G3 flagship phone: the LG G3 Stylus. Given its name, you won’t be surprised to learn that it comes with a stylus – LG’s own Rubberdium pen – and like the Samsung Galaxy Note range it’s been designed with pen use in mind. A suite of apps called QuickMemo+, for example, allows you to make and share handwritten notes an...[Read More]
